Cake pulls an April Fools about Isildur1!!

Isildur1 is most likely not actually Mats Sundin. (image courtesy of PokerTableRatings.com)

Yes, as many of you guessed by now, our Isildur1 is Mats Sundin post was a joke. As far as we know, Isildur1 is still maintaining his secret identity.

Though we like to think that if he really is Mats Sundin, and he does actually play for charity, it would be the Human Fund that would be the beneficiary of his winnings.

Happy April Fools Day!

UPDATE

The good folks at PokerListings seem to have had a very similar joke planned. Sadly, they made the mistake of calculating April 1 based on North American time zones instead of doing it on Swedish time like we did. We hate to see their awesome video go to waste, so we have stolen shared it here for your enjoyment because it’s pretty damn funny.

Is Isildur1 finally named???

s Isildur1 unmasked?????

I raed this article at Cake poker

Mystery Swede no longer, Mats Sundin admits to being Isildur1.
A pair of media outlets in Stockholm, including Sportradion, are reporting some big news – the mysterious super high-stakes poker player previously known only as Isildur1 is actually retired hockey pro Mats Sundin. According to these reports, Sundin’s agent will be making the official announcement later today.
While he’s kept his identity private until now, Isildur1/Mats Sundin has stepped forward to reveal his identity, in preparation for a live appearance at the upcoming The Big Game IV, on April 11-13th, at Les Ambassadeurs Club in Mayfair, London. Professional poker player Tony G. made headlines when he offered to stake Isildur1 at the event, and even suggested he wear a mask to protect his identity. According to the reports, Sundin will be playing for the charity The Human Fund, and deliberately used the notoriety of his enigmatic online poker handle to help raise the profile of his appearance at the Big Game IV, in support of his charitable work.
Until today, most insiders have assumed that Isildur1 was actually the young Swedish pro Viktor Blom, despite Blom’s assurances it was not him. The reality is surprising, though not as shocking as it seems on the surface. Mats Sundin is known as a relatively skilled poker player and has had some impressive results at live tournaments. He has no shortage of bankroll, even playing to the ultra high-stakes Isildur1 has been known for. Sundin made in excess of $25 million USD during his NHL hockey career, and owns a number of successful real-estate ventures in Stockholm. And those close to the hockey player have stated that he’s spent the last year and a half logging huge hours playing online poker.
